Subject Indonesia planning to import raw sugar from India

PUNE: Indonesia, the world's second-largest sugar importer, is exploring the possibility of buying raw sugar from India, where a bumper cane crop has raised fears of a glut of the sweetener.

India, too, is keen to export a bigger quantity, preferably through barter trade, according to industry executives.

A delegation from Indonesian Sugar Association met representatives of the Indian sugar industry in New Delhi recently. "As India will have excess sugar production next year, Indonesian industry is keen to import sugar from India," said Prakash Naiknavare, Managing Director of National Federation of Co-operative Sugar Factories.

"As India imports most of its edible oil from Indonesia, the industry is keen to do barter trade of the sweetener in exchange for oil.

"We are exploring the possibility of barter trade with Indonesia," said Naiknavare.

The domestic sugar industry has already demanded removal of the 20% export duty on sugar. It is also concerned over recent reports that 2,000 tonnes of sugar have landed in the country from Pakistan via the land route. Indonesia being closer in distance to India as compared with Brazil, is expected to reduce cost of imports for the Country.

According to the International Sugar Organisation (ISO), cost of importing raw sugar has increased by 2% for Indonesia.
